AMHERST, N.Y. – Daemen College’s Paralegal Studies Program has been granted approval by the American Bar Association, making it one of only two ABA-approved college programs in the Buffalo Niagara region.

Following an extensive evaluation process, the seven-year approval for Daemen’s program was awarded by the ABA Standing Committee on Paralegals. The college’s paralegal studies program was determined to have met rigorous requirements in curriculum, faculty selection and instruction, quality of student work, and support by administration and the legal community.

“Designation as an ABA-approved program is a key milestone that speaks to the exceptional quality of our paralegal studies program,” said Dr. Michael Brogan, vice president for academic affairs and dean of the college. “We are proud of this achievement and the program’s commitment to academic excellence in educating future paralegal professionals.”

The Western New York Land Conservancy is hosting a special talk with Twan Leenders, president of the Roger Tory Peterson Institute and expert herpetologist, at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 23 at Grand Island Town Hall. 

Each spring, salamanders have a “big night” where they all — that’s right, all of them at once — come out of their forest homes and migrate back to the seasonal woodland pools where they were born. They breed at these same pools. The public is invited to come find out more about these quiet but amazing amphibians and how we can help with their survival.
